Complete!

At 8am on Wednesday 16th November, the Let’s Talk Sport team (Jack Price, Dan Middleton & Jamie Davies) began the mammoth task of broadcasting a 56 hour radio show as they set out to fundraise for BBC Children in Need’s 2016 Appeal.

The show ended at 4pm today in high spirits as the team took a look back at the show. Over the 56 hours, guests included local charities that benefit from Children in Need funding. Staff from Home Start, Your Space, Meningitis Now, Nightingale House Hospice, Groundwork North Wales and Family Friends joined them in the studio and it was great to hear about all of the amazing work these charities do in the Wrexham area and the difference that the Children in Need appeal makes in our community.

Wrexham Tri Steve and debbieA triathlon competitor who represented Great Britain in his age group at the World Championships is among a team of athletes who have raised money in memory of a courageous teenager.

Wrexham Triathlon Club has raised £1,000 in aid of Nicola’s Fund, a charity inspired by talented schoolgirl Nicola Riley that enables families coping with childhood cancer to enjoy a well-deserved, paid-for holiday.

Nicola, who lost her battle against a brain tumour 11 years ago, was treated to a special family holiday in Florida the year before she died and was concerned her friends in hospital would not have the same opportunity, especially those who were too poorly to travel such a distance.

She talked about setting up a charity that would enable youngsters undergoing gruelling hospital treatment to have a well-earned rest with their families and Nicola’s Fund was born in the teenager’s honour.

Great Britain triathlon competitor Ian laing, who recently returned from Mexico where he competed in the World Triathlon Championships in the 60-64 age group, was among the club members who designated Nicola’s Fund as one of its chosen charities for 2016.

CSLogoHiresCrimestoppers is today launching a campaign to appeal for help from the local communities in Wrexham to help eradicate the issue of arson.

 The independent charity is working alongside North Wales Police and North Wales Fire and Rescue to try and reduce the number of incidents that have occurred in the area, in the hope of making local communities a safer place. 

 Wrexham has seen a series of arson attacks in recent years, with a number of cars, motorbikes, debris and foliage being set alight deliberately.

 Last year alone, firefighters from Wrexham dealt with 55 arson attacks in one estate, while details released earlier this year during a council consultation on how to tackle Wrexham’s ‘arson problem’ stated: “Arson has been a recurring problem in Wrexham for a number of years. There is a significantly higher level of deliberate fires in the county compared to the rest of North Wales over the past five years.”
